Mary Immaculate Catholic Church

Join us as we hear from Kurdish-American Evangelist and Author, Daniel Ali. Daniel is an Iraqi Kurd who grew up Muslim under Saddam Hussein’s Anfal campaigns against the Kurds. He lived through gassings and chemical weapons attacks on thousands of Kurdish villages.

He is author of two books: Inside Islam: A Guide for Catholics, and Out of Islam, Free at Last. This second book spells out clearly how to evangelize Muslims using only their own book, the Koran, since many Muslims suspect the Bible is not accurate. His third book is being written in the Holy Land and is entitled Muslim Objections to Jesus Christ.

The New Day Program is designed to help each person work through the tasks of grief in an atmosphere of caring and understanding.

The number of participants is limited in order to create a supportive environment for each person.

6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m

Journey of Hope

 

In his book, “On Heaven and Earth”, Pope Francis is quoted stating that Divorced, Separated and Remarried Catholics should, "integrate into the parish life". If you look around, you will find that most Divorced, Remarried and Separated are not sitting in our pews. This is because many times the topic of Divorce makes us feel uncomfortable. We tend to shy away from asking or getting involved. Christ calls us to Charity for the poor and the needy. Our Divorced and Separated brothers and sisters are in need. Some are poor in spirit. As soldiers for Christ, we are called to evangelize by being inviting and attentive to those in need.

If you are separated or divorced, or know of a Catholic that has fallen away due to their Divorce or Separation, the road to healing is available through our Journey of Hope program here at Mary Immaculate!

Those seeking healing are invited to take the first step by attending our weekly meetings on Sundays, 10:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Parish Conference room.

For more information contact Alma at almasanchez2@yahoo.com or Priscilla at pricim@maryimmaculatechurch.org

 FREEDOM
 
"I can't forgive him, he's not sorry for what he did." was the response from Stacy when she was asked how she felt about forgiving her former spouse. She went on to explain....  Click HERE to see the rest of the daily Journey of Hope message for divorced Catholics


 
Saying I Do…
What Happens at a
Catholic Wedding
 
Are you recently engaged, planning a wedding or thinking about the Sacrament of Marriage? A great video for couples, families and anyone considering marriage in the Catholic Church, “Saying I do…What happens at a Catholic Wedding”, is available for viewing online.

This video walks you through the Rite of Marriage, whether you’re marrying another Catholic, a baptized person who is not Catholic, or someone who is not baptized. It also answers several FAQs about Catholic weddings.

For more information contact Priscilla Mahaffey at 972-243-7104 Ext. 26 or pricim@maryimmaculatechurch.org

YEAR OF CONSECRATED LIFE

Pope Frances called for a “Year of Consecrated Life” to run from February 2015 to February 2016.

If any members of your family are consecrated lay persons, priests, nuns, friars, brothers, or anyone serving in the religious life, please feel free to bring a photo of them with  a very brief sentence about them.  We want to honor them all those religious, especially those who came through Mary Immaculate School or have been a parishioner now or in the past. 

If you have questions, please call Beth in the church office.

STEWARDSHIP

A Stewardship Prayer

Our Blessed Lord!

Our Risen Savior!

 

We give you thanks

For the awe-inspiring gift of Easter

And the redemption we enjoy

As a result of your gift.

 

We give you thanks for calling us

your friends

and allowing us to share your body

and blood

in the holy Eucharist.

 

Oh merciful Lord,

Redeemer and Teacher,

by the power of the Holy Spirit

give us the skills to listen to you

more closely;

the wisdom to put

the Eucharist into action;

and the courage to bring

your Easter message of hope

to a world that desperately needs

your love

 

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.  Amen
